Woah, we aren't complaining about the free upgrade for Thunderbird. (At least, I'm not. In fact, I'm very grateful)

Now, that bit about a free online magazine... I have a "free" blog, yet if I post garbage in there I'd expect people to bash me. What I'm criticizing is the lack of commitment from the staff behind mozillazine. If you don't have the time to post a single entry like this one, delegate this to someone else. A lot of people put a lot of their time in fixing and patching Mozilla's products. By not updating regularly this website, the crew at mozillazine is hampering the community as a whole.

Of course, you might argue that if I don't like this site I should not check it anymore. I don't think that's the point of these remarks, though...
